Hi. Anyone know anything about this guitar ? Or Fernandes ? Saw a used one today and it caught my eye. Was hoping some could fill me in on this brand and model.

Thanks in advance !

Here's my Ravelle Elite- a MiK guitar- bought in October 2012.

In general, Ravelles are made to a fairly high standard, with the JPs being the best of the bunch. But the MiKs (like mine) show all the hallmarks of tight quality control.

My Ravelle has fairly hot pickups and a comfy neck with a bit of a taper- neither paper thin nor baseball bat thick. It has the Sustainer pickup, which has been a load of fun. The honey burst & abalone may be a bit blingy for some, but I like it. I have not found any blemishes, chips, or any other indicators of sloppy manufacture.

The artists who brought the Ravelle to my attention were Reeves Gabrels and Dave Navarro.

Like a number of firms, Fernandes makes instruments across a wide spectrum of features, quality and price. The high-end instruments are good, and they've snagged more than a few artist endorsements - mostly people who play the heavy stuff, it seems. I cannot speak to their lower-end guitars, but a high-end Ravelle would be a good choice.
